The following is the verbatim description of the program from the Washington Post -


Television coverage of the war in Iraq often boils down to policy and politics.
One rarely gets a clear picture of what soldiers endure and how much they sacrifice. The hour-long documentary "AN ACT OF HONOR" is a notable and noble exception.

On November 15, 2004, Marine Sgt. Rafael Peralta died saving the lives of the membes of his platoon. They were engaged in house-to-house and street-to-street combat in the city of Fallujah. Using news footage and clips of video from cell-phone cameras, "ACT" offers viewers a rare and intimate view of this most gruesome and dangerous form of war."

I for one will be watching.
